Saudi Green Building (SGB)

USGBC student groups recruit, connect and equip the next generation of green building leaders.

Representing college- and university-based groups of students from all disciplines, USGBC Students is a way for hundreds of young leaders to come together and participate in hands-on green building experiences on their own campuses through service initiatives. USGBC helps students integrate sustainability themes into their coursework and advocate for sustainable university practices and policies. There are currently 60 active student groups and USGBC expects to engage more than 250 groups nationwide over the next five years.
